Overview of finished research projects on Industrial Ecology. Projects are ordered by end-date.
In this project the field of weighting methods was surveyed, developing a framework for typifying options. Next, three basic approaches were chosen, each most consistent in itself, and filled with a number of operational methods. The applicability of the weighting methods was expanded to the broadest and most generally specified level, based on the ILCD Handbook on LCIA as the reference for characterisation in LCA.
Writing an operational guide to the ISO standards for LCA and related sub-projects.
Exploring linkages between energe and material use and implications for sustainable development
Examining the sustainability aspects of biotechnology, especially those related to the production of ethanol from biomass
A new environmental accounting framework using externality data and input-output tools for policy analysis
